Outlook of the bottled water market in South Africa

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the bottled water market in South Africa to grow rapidly at a CAGR of around 25% by 2020. Rampant water contamination has led to the proliferation of waterborne diseases like jaundice and cholera. Since most bottled water brands meet the standards set by governments and regulatory bodies, consumers prefer consuming bottled water that are microbe-free and purified. This growing preference for bottled water among the populace will result in the substantial growth of this market in South Africa during the forecast period.

South Africa’s water crisis is expected to bolster the demand for bottled water during the estimated period. Also, factors such as the rise in disposable income and growing urbanization are expected to impel the bottled water market in South Africa until the end of 2020.
